Test Prediction of School Success of Bilingual Hispanoamerican Children.
Philippus, M. J.
Thirty bilingual Hispanoamerican students between the ages of eight and thirteen were given verbal and non-verbal intelligence tests which were then correlated with overall school grade point average. Non-verbal tests resulted in higher correlations; the Raven Colored Progressive Matrices appeared to be the best predictor of school successes of these children. Following these results it was hypothesized that perceptual-motor skills were used by these children in some way to accomplish verbal activities.
